Off to North Carolina.


I am sorry I have been remiss in reading your posts and commenting on them. The Tennis season of the Quincy High School is consuming all our time and energy it seems. Noah my grandson has been playing so well, and will be playing in the  Sectionals this weekend, and if he wins his matches on Friday he will be selected to go to the State next weekend. I pray that he gets selected.

This weekend I am going to North Carolina to take part in a Writers’ Conference/Retreat in the mountains. It is in a small place called Little Switzerland, and is nestled in the woods there. I am looking forward to that.

After returning from there, I hope to have more time to spend on the computer and read your posts. Until then, take care, and be well.

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.
